First-Year Council

First-Year Council is comprised of 60 first-year students. Throughout the year, FYC members plan events in conjunction with Student Services to connect with campus and reach out to members of the student body, as well as participate in a range of SGA programs. They will also work together with the Student Senate to produce legislation beneficial to first-year students. Members have opportunities to learn about the many facets of SGA and student life at UT while connecting with administrators to lobby on behalf of the freshman class. Contact Vice-President, McKinsey Patterson, at with questions. 
A common application for all branches of SGA will go live soon. Sign up for the Rocky Top Report to stay up-to-date on all things SGA, and get notified when the application goes live!
